The place and atmosphere are great. The beautiful Mexican environment with a genuine Mexican food prepare by a real mexican family that embraced Cape Town as their second homeland. As taste full, friendly and warm as only real Mexican can be.

They were very busy and only seemed to have two waiters on duty - service was terrible and we waited for almost two hours for our food. The food the came out at different times and, to add insult to injury, I was charged R12,50 for a portion of chopped chilli.

This place was highly recommended to us by friends that are regulars here... I can see why! We stopped by for Saturday dinner with a friend - I'd recommend making a reservation, although it wasn't extremely busy on the night.

What a great place - unpretentious, warm vibe. No frills or fuss. Menu is short but filled with all the delicious mexican flavors and combinations you can expect from a truly mexican restaurant. The margaritas are to die for! Do yourself a favour and order the jug to share - you wouldn't regret it! Unless not until the morning! :)... More

I really loved this place. The main course was great, the tequila was outstanding and the desert was to die for. Only issues I had was 1) Half the tequila on the menu was out of stock. 2) The place was cooking hot and they closed the windows. But that been said I strongly recommend this place.

Casual place tastefully decorated. Smallish venue with an open kitchen. This family run business makes the real deal unfortunately portions are small. I would love to see the addition of a platter here. Definitely worth a visit.
